If you are Black, you are 31 times more likely to be killed by a black person, than the police.
If you are Black, the Police statistically are more likely to help you, than kill you.

A 2012 study by the Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
revealed that in 2010 black youths committed
6 times more murders,
3 times more rapes,
10 times more robberies
and 3 times more assaults
than did their white counterparts.

So what is responsible for the Violence in Black communities?

Is Black culture just more violent?

Or is the violence tied to something much more complicated that is
Socio-Economic in nature?
We will explore ideas of poverty and the way we talk about race in the next piece.
